Brainwaves – July 16, 2019 – That 70s show in covers

Brainwaves goes back to the 70s this week but with a twist. Every song this week’s show is from the 70s – but performed by a modern band. All your favorites – from Jackie Blue to Maggie May – in new versions. Is it too late (Carole King) or is it 25 or 6 to 4 (Chicago covered by Pacifika)? Def Leppard covering ELO? Nada Surf does the Moody Blues? It’s all on this week’s Brainwaves.
